Hi all (especially Roland who has been so helpful),
I’ve resumed trying to troubleshoot this. Are we absolutely, positively sure the ISO on
the website is set up correctly? Since this last email I have tried dd imaging it (after
checking sha256sum) into several devices and booting on several machines. It won’t boot
via legacy/BIOS on any of these machines. If I use the “alternative” method available from
the Windows “Rufus” utility, it can get part of the way through booting before complaining
of a missing EXFAT kernel module.
I have also tried burning the image to CD-R. When I booted from it I saw a number of
errors related to bad sectors on the CD, but it eventually continued through the
installation. After it was finished, rebooting to the installed hard drive didn’t work; it
says it isn’t bootable, although the expected partition map seems to be there.
I’m going to try to burn it again in case I had a bad CD-R. I’ve tried to do it via my
Mac, though, and it says the ISO image is invalid. This raises a red flag for me. Are
there alternate installation methods I can try?

Hmm, I'm really running out of ideas now. Just downloaded the installer
once more myself, burned the ISO on a stick, plugged it into my laptop
and booted just fine from it. So the ISO is definitely OK. Hope you'll
find the culprit.
